My name is Joe and I am in the process of becoming a certified English Language Arts and Reading teacher. I have a degree in English Literature from the University of California, Santa Barbara. I am passionate about helping young people learn how a mastery of our language can help them reach their future goals, whatever those may be, and patient enough to work at any level necessary to turn difficult concepts into everyday tools. I believe in challenging students to create their own knowledge base that they can own and use in a variety of situations, rather than "hand-feeding" information. I'm happy to help with reading for any kind of text, addressing vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency by using oral reading and metacognition development techniques. Regarding literature reading specifically, I can help with understanding of literary devices, themes, poetry analysis, and a variety of forms of critical analysis. I'm also able to help with the many challenges of writing, including grammar, style, structure, audience, and developing a process that works. I'm available most weekdays, weeknights, and weekends by appointment.
